    Both varieties of this Dendrobium hercoglossum are pretty, but I much prefer the pink one over the alba version (the lip is so much more interesting to me.)

    cheers,

    you know, for me var. alba is just rare plant, but for me, the original coloured flowers are always better. I'm often asking me, why some people are willing to pay so much money for an alba spec.

    First time seeing an alba form of this species.
    I like it because it gives us another chose of color when pink color is anywhere. Take good care of it, Mietek.
